Back to the Boulevard
The Franklin Neighborhood Development Corporation (FNDC), in partnership with the Sacramento Office of Arts and Culture, has released a request for qualifications (RFQ) for artists based in Sacramento for murals on the 21st Avenue underpass of Highway 99 and on the wall of a business on 21st Ave.
These murals’ objective is to help create a more welcoming environment along a key walking route between South Oak Park, North City Farms, and the Franklin District, and to and from Ethel Phillips Elementary School, and to help reconnect these neighborhoods that were cut off by the construction of Highway 99 in the 1960s.
The budget for the project is $72,000 through Clean CA grant funding from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). The murals are part of a larger effort to help beautify 21st Avenue with murals, community bus stops, trees, infrastructure and lighting improvements.
